Kozel takes silver medal in fencing

Team championships for the New England Division of the U. S. Fencing Association were held on Saturday and Sunday, March 25 and 26, at Prise de Fer Fencing Club in North Billerica, Mass.

Teams were divided by weapons - foil, epee, and sabre - and by gender. The Rhode Island Fencing Academy & Club of Warren, R.I., sent 13 teams to the event. The RIFAC teams medaled either silver or bronze in every category of every weapon.

Caitlin Kozel of Jamestown, a student at Brandeis University, competed in Women's Epee, winning with her team the RIFAC's fourth silver medal of the championships.

Overall, the RIFAC team success was an accumulation of four silver medals and two bronze medals. These six represent fully one-third of the total medals possible at the team event.
